Cool Kashmir

I went to Kashmir all alone, I travelled more by public transportation. I feel very free in Kashmir. Cool Kashmir and people are also very cool and helpful. Everyone can go without fear. But you will have to know little bit hindi language. I stayed at hotel nearby Dal lake for 2km. I took a taxi to go to Sonamarg on 1st May as that day was "Kashmir Bandh". Overall my Kashmir trip was very cool, peace and heartfelt. Now Srinagar is my best city.

I shopped in Lalo Chowk bazar. All items will be available at low cost. Winter wear, dry fruit items and other items will be available. All Kashmiri people are most helpful, especially for tourists. Tulip garden will open only on certain days only. In 2018, it was opened in April month only. And other gardens also very beautiful to visit. We should visit Dal lake. We can taste street food at Dal chowk .
